Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. white cake mix + ingredients to prepare
  • 1 pkg. 3 oz. lime jello
  • 1 pkg. 3 oz. blue raspberry jello
  • 1 pkg. 3 oz. cherry jello
  • 3 cups boiling water
  • 8 oz. container of whipped topping or 3 cups homemade cool whip
  • Holiday sprinkles

Instructions

  • Make cake mix according to package and using a 9-inch x 13-inch pan sprayed with cooking spray per package also. Bake as directed.
  • Let cake completely cool. Poke in rows using a small wooden spoon, dowel or two pronged fork at 1/2-1" intervals. I found the cake stuck to the wooden spoon so you have to clean it regularly of cake or your holes would get too large.
  • Pour one cup of boiling water into each of the jello and stir to dissolve. Pour each row with a different color using a spouted measuring cup. Refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Top with whipped topping and sprinkles and refrigerate again for a few hours. Serve chilled.

Notes

If you prefer to make the white cake from scratch, I like this recipe from i am baker.
